From higher degree to honorary degree

A psychologist who graduated from the University of Leicester with a PhD in 1967 has this summer been awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Science by Aberdeen University for his contribution to the understanding of human error. Professor James Reason received the award during a graduation ceremony at Marischal College. 

After studying at the universities of Manchester and Leicester, he joined the Royal Airforce Institute of Aviation. From the late 70s he has been committed to applying his expertise to real world problems and he is universally renowned for his research at the University of Manchester. His Leicester dissertation was entitled The Study of Individual Differences in Perceptual and Decision-Making Behaviour.
